The gaming experience and content watching is great. The display is punchier, accurate, brighter, and colorful. It’s also protected by the gorilla glass 5. Which is stronger enough to make the display protection stronger. It also have DCIP3 which makes the 405 PPI on the 6.5 inches screen. it makes the pixel more tightly together. This display is also Full HD+.

Design and build:

Samsung Galaxy A52s have amazing designs. It’s the same design as the Samsung S21 Ultra. Which is my favorite one. The camera bump is awesome. The height, weight, is pretty much good but the phone is 189 gram. Which is lighter also good in-hand experience. The phone is also have IP67 certification which is splash and dustproof resistant. The phone is lightweight because it’s made of plastic. The back is plastic. The frame is also plastic. The Samsung Galaxy A52s have an in display fingerprint sensor. Which makes it more accurate thanks to its ultrasonic fingerprint reader.

The base one is 128GB and the peak one is 256GB. The storage is based on the UFS 2.1. Which gives you a good read and write speeds. There is also SD card support on the Samsung Galaxy A52s. This smartphone can support an SD cards up to 1TB. It is crazy to think that your device has 10256GB of storage. Which is quite amazing. You can capture pics, movies it will hold them together without considering it to move to a PC or A hard drive.

Considering this processor for gaming. It’s quite good because of the GPU of this smartphone. It’s Adreno 642L. Which is based on 6NM makes it faster and more efficient. You can play PUBG Mobile on it and it will support full graphics giving you a stable 60Fps. I will recommend the 8GB variant because it will give more ram to handle tasks in background.

Benchmarks:

Geekbench 5:

The CPU is also have good architecture based on big A78 cores. The memory speeds is a little bit slower but its fast enough. If they would’ve given the UFS 3.1 support then the memory would’ve been a lot faster. This processor can support the screen refresh rate at 120Hz. So, the UX also shows the best scores for a mid-ranger Processor.

Samsung Galaxy A52s comes with the Android 12. Which is a lot smoother. It comes with the Samsung one ui 4.0 which is a lot faster than the last-gen one ui 3.1. This one UI 4.0 is bugs-free and lag-free with the 120 Hz you can see the full smooth experience.

Samsung Galaxy A52s comes with a 4500mah battery. Which is less compared to the other mid-range smartphone. Because almost every midrange smartphone has a 5000mah battery with 33watts of fast charging. But this smartphone has a 4500mah battery with 25waats of fast charging. This is a midrange smartphone so there is no wireless charging support.

There is no 8k support on this smartphone, but it is 4k at 30fps. A little disappointed to see the 30fps support only in this smartphone. It is also 1080p at 60 fps which is a good option for cinematic shots. There is also a slow motions support which is kept on 720p at 240 fps. There is also an ultra-wide-angle camera. Which has a quite good angle view of 123degree. Let’s talk about the camera sensors in detail.
